Aram Avakian United States, 1970

Lee Hill's rating of the film End of the Road

A neglected masterpiece of American independent cinema. Based on the John Barth novel, Co-produced and co-adapted by Terry Southern, and directed by Aram Avakian (until then best known as Arthur Penn's editor on The Miracle Worker and Mickey One), End of the Road is a stunning deconstruction of late sixties intelligentsia reeling from the socio-political overload of 1968. Lensed by the late Gordon Willis.
